Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, whose stone walls resonate with Gregorian chants, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

Wonderful day experience to get a taste of Tuscany. The bus was comfortable and our guide, Claudia was very knowledgable and fun. The best part was the lunch served at the vineyard with wines. Also enjoyed the abbey and sites in Montepulciano and Pienza.

Excellent tour, and Laura is an excellent guide. The only, you thing fell short of our expectations was lunch. It was good but basically it is appetizers and pasta. Wine tasting was very good. Excellent experience with the tours to the Tuscany towns and Abby.

Well worth it, and I highly recommend the experience! The places visited on this trip are among the most picturesque imaginable, and provide a welcome diversion from the wonderful, but still... fast pace of Rome. Alessandro, our tour guide, was delightful and truly knowledgeable and he struck the right tone of being informative without being intrusive. There were plenty of opportunities to explore on one's own or simply enjoy the peacefulness and stunning landscapes of Tuscany.
